TAMIU Launches New eTranscript Ordering System


Registrar's Office Admission
The launch of TAMIU eTranscript Ordering Service dramatically reduces the wait for transcript orders.  

A new transcript ordering system at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) will dramatically cut wait times for official University transcripts from days to minutes. 

“This new service automates much of what was previously a manual system that was just as frustrating for employees as it was for students who were unfairly inconvenienced,” explained TAMIU Registrar Juan G. García.

The new system, TAMIU eTranscript Ordering Service, is an electronic transcript solution.  It works through automation and integration with the University’s existing Student Information System (SIS) and is brokered by National Student Clearinghouse Services for added security.

Students and alumni will be able to file their request online at www.getmytranscript.com 24/7.  They simply select “TAMIU” and click submit.  An order button then guides them through a step-by-step process that enables them to receive emails and text updates, as well as track their order online. Students receive their transcript via the Clearinghouse’s secure server.

Previously, the cost of transcript ordering, accompanied by an often-frustrating delay, was $3 per transcript.  The cost of the TAMIU eTranscript is $7, and the access and results are efficiently, safely, and timely delivered.

García said the benefits of the new TAMIU eTranscript are multiple and impact both students/alumni and the University’s staff.

“Of course, online access and delivery is an expectation for today’s student and graduate. Tracking and receiving the transcript on your desktop or other device is a huge win for students and is fast becoming the standard at all institutions of higher learning.

“It’s also a win for the University, as it frees up valuable staff time to provide other vital services, including face to face consultation and phone assistance on other pressing student matters. We can be much more nimble and productive with our time with the TAMIU eTranscript Ordering Service in place,” García explained.

Founded in 1993 by the higher education community, the National Student Clearinghouse is dedicated to removing administrative burdens and costs related to student data reporting and exchange. A 501(c)(6) nonprofit and nongovernmental organization, it is the leading provider of trusted, secure and private educational reporting, data exchange, verification, and research services. More than 3,600 colleges and universities like TAMIU participate in the Clearinghouse.
